Blue Note Records is releasing a full, expansive edition of jazz trumpeter Lee Morgan’s historic live album Live at the Lighthouse.

It’s the first time that all 12 sets of music the Lee Morgan Quintet recorded during their landmark engagement in Hermosa Beach, Calif., in the summer of 1970 have been presented in one collection.

The quintet featured saxophonist Bennie Maupin, pianist Harold Mabern, bassist Jymie Merritt and drummer Mickey Roker.

“Right from the beginning, we developed such a heart-to-heart connection with each other,” says Maupin. “I think that’s really reflected in what we did. It was just about being in the moment and capturing the moment, and we did that.”

“In a sense, it is holy music,” adds Merritt. “And that was the thing I felt throughout the performances at The Lighthouse. This was totally uncompromised music in terms of the way it went down.”
